The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.NEW YORK ( Trefis) -- Concerns about the Apple's ( AAPL) iPad heating up to alarming levels seem to have little impact on the tablet's consumer satisfaction ratings, implying that the heating issues are probably a rare occurrence.
In any case, the iPad accounts for only about 13% of Apple's value and any issue raised with the tablet is hence not as big a concern as a similar one raised with the iPhone, which is over 50% of Apple's value. But considering the halo effect that Apple's products have on each other, a recurrence of such issues on a consistent basis across the iPad's user base could have a much larger impact on the entire Apple portfolio than just the iPad.
